Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund
THE MOZART GESELLSCHAFT DORTMUND – A SUCCESS STORY
Since founding its support programme in 1961 the Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund has given assistance to over 160 scholarship holders and made the way for them into the hard music business a little easier.
The number of scholarship holders grows and grows.
The Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund organises six Mozart matinees per season in the Konzerthaus Dortmund. These matinees have a varied programme. Mozart’s music is combined with the works of other composers. Internationally renowned orchestras are invited to take part together with current or former scholarship holders who take over the solo part.
The chosen scholarship holders are provided with various forms of assistance. This may involve the creation of an individual website, photo shootings or master classes. Financial support for CD productions or videos is given and travel expenses are paid for.
A large proportion of the selected scholarship holders manage the breakthrough which was hoped for.
The work of the Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund is supported by its members and sponsors. As a charitable institution the Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund works without any public subsidies.
The number of members, the concert successes and the support for young musicians have made the Mozart Gesellschaft Dortmund as a member of the “Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum Salzburg” into the most important society of its kind in the German speaking world.
